      Comments about Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

      Oxidized so bad that I looked like I had a terrible spray tan. Shoddy coverage. If you tried to build to more coverage, it would clump. Did not blend well. It left me so oily. Normally, I will touch up my make up once after the initial application; but with this, I was touching up 4 times a day! Even with a primer (I use smash) it was a fight to keep on. Would not buy again. Such a shame that the store in my town would not let me return it even after one application. Not worth the money.

      Holy Grail foundation

      By Stef

      from LA

      Comments about Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

      I have been using this foundation for about two years now, and I absolutely love it. I have oily skin with about a normal breakout every couple of weeks and yes this is a light to medium coverage foundation, so when I have a break out or whatever I use the benefit porefessional and mayballine baby skin instant pore eraser over my spots and it's a good combination. This foundation feels like there's nothing on my skin, and most of all is buildable. My only thing is, you have to use a kabuki brush and not a beauty blender. I recommend the It cosmetics slanted kabuki brush number 115.I hope this review helps someone!

        I really enjoy this foundation. It gives a nice dewy finish and last a really long time. I think I got the wrong color though as it is a little orange on me. Will more than likely repurchase.

          • Q:

            I used High Definition Health FX foundation in Light L3 for years and it seems to be discontinued. The website suggested I look at this product. Is it comparable coverage? I'm concerned that the SPF will cause the white face flash that the Healthy FX did not. I'm also curious about which shade would be comparable. Thanks!

              A:

              This foundation provides buildable sheer-to-medium coverage. All Smashbox products are photo-tested in a professional studio environment to ensure their finishes photograph beautifully (no "flashback" effect).

              Use our handy shade conversion chart to determine your best shade match:

              We suggest shade 4 for those who used L3.

          • Q:

            I really like the smashbox BB cream, but I want something with just a little more coverage for events, date nights, and etcetera. I wear the light/medium in the BB cream and that is a pretty close match to my skin tone. So, what would be my best match for the Liquid Halo HD Foundation Broad Spectrum?

              Light Warm Beige (4) (Item #:2262310) may be your best match. Please note that these shades may be tested at your nearest ULTA store, if you prefer:

            I am in the "seasoned women" category. Does this foundation settle in to fine lines and/or areas around the eyes emphasizing lines and creases?
